The Nativity It was St. Francis of Assisi who first gave us the creche or nativity scene. We have one in our Church at Christmas time so that we can all see what it may have looked like when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea.
Hail Mary full of Grace, the Lord is with thee. Blessed are thou among women and blessed is the fruit of thy womb Jesus. Holy Mary Mother of God, pray for us sinners now and at the hour of our death Amen.
